Frank Ocean

NOT Pressing Charges

Against Chris Brown

breaking news

0202_frank_ocean2Frank Ocean says he WILL NOT press charges against Chris Brown after last week's parking lot brawl.

Frank wrote a post on his Tumblr page to explain his decision, saying, "As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. But as a man I am not a killer."

He continued, "I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.”

As TMZ first reported, Frank and CB got into a physical altercation last week outside a recording studio in L.A -- allegedly over a highly coveted parking spot.

You'll recall ... a witness on scene said CB threw the first punch and according to cops Chris was named as a suspect in the battery case. Sources close to Chris remained adamant Frank came at him.

Someone needs to administer that entitled no-talent thug a life-altering whooping. Or maybe neutering would calm him down . . . works for dogs.

Why is he letting everyone drive his car? I have a focus and I won't even let my sister drive it.

Chris must have paid off Frank. Frank needs to be ashamed of himself for not pressing charges and the next time Chris beats the heck out of someone I hope it is on Frank's conscience! Once again Chris is not held accountable for his violent actions. Frank is a wuss!

He wants to press charges but it would be career suicide. Also, his sexual preference would be spotlighted.

There is probably a lot of pressure on all of these people that continually let Chris Brown get away with things like this, If you send Chris Brown to jail you are going to screw up all kinds of scheduled events and recording sessions, etc. This will make the record company people that control your career very unhappy. Getting hit and calling the cops isn't good press for a rapper, either.
